85 percent of all products seized at EU border originate from China

85 percent?!.
If only the other IP infringing countries could sue China
for anti-competitive behaviour...
For the statistically inclined, Commisioner Algirdas Šemeta, responsible for customs of the European Union, shared some results about the seizures at the EU border. According to the Lithuanian:

-  "Overal, China continued to be the main source country from where goods suspected of infringing an
IPR were sent to the EU (85% of the total amount of articles)."
- Hong Kong was the main source for memory cards.

it is obvious.. China has the largest commodity production market, hence they export the most of its production abroad...
